obama's ncaa bracket is a shocking failure of leadership. house republican conference put this video on youtube, echoing the same complaint. how dare he. all kinds of congressional republicans, including house speaker john boehner went on twitter insisting obama should stop this outrage of liking sports. get off my lawn! it is march madness, republican style. the first day of spring, the annual opportunity for house republicans to turn over an old leaf they know they shouldn't turn over any more but they can't stop themselves. also clearly it is going to be gonzaga. that does it for us tonight. see you tomorrow night. right now, time for "the last word with lawrence o'donnell." have a great evening. >>> tonight, here in washington, we now know that when the president's away, republicans will play the same budget games they play when he's here. >> the united states of america stands with the state of israel. >> obama in israel for the first time as president. >> joking with israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu that it was good to get from congress. >> you only tease the one

. these two major provisions were passed under the obama administration both have the same characteristics. hester pierce talked-about the biggest issue, i believe that is true. that is the thing we have to look at most carefully. that is the area that gets the greatest danger, and i spend a lot of time on it in the book. as a foundation for crony capitalism, there is nothing better, nothing more dangerous than what has been done with the financial stability oversight council. it will now have the opportunity to declare certain non-bank financial institutions are dangers to the financial system and have to be stringently regulated. what that will mean over time as more and more of those institutions pull in to their select category that the fed will have an opportunity to control what those institutions say on all matters of public policy. if one of those institutions should suggest the administration on some issue weather is the trade issue, it will be discreet warning, and tone that down and we don't have to have this controversy. that message is the essence of crony capitalism and will

the same way? >> it's the intersection of politics and policy. barack obama has the most dysfunctional relationship with an israeli prime minister as any american president has had in the history of the u.s./israeli relations. it goes beyond begin and carter and bush 41 and the reality is that no american president for political reasons and policy reasons can afford to have this sort of relationship. a lot of it rests on netanyahu and his first incarnation. even clinton, a guy who was prepared to cut him all kinds of breaks was annoyed in extreme us with some of netanyahu's frustrating behavior. but the reality is that barack obama has to clear away this old business, this dysfunctional relationship and he has to deal with two basic realities. he does not want to be the american president on whose watch the two-state solution expires and he certainly doesn't want to be the american president on whose watch iran acquire it is xas capacity or everybody a nuclear weapon. so israel is central to both of those stories. he's going early, there's no expectations and he's going e

advanced degrees. but at the same time, i agree, for example, obama and his state of the union address recently talked about the importance of getting more technical training. because our students today really need to understand how the, what they're doing in middle 62 and high school, absolutely is linked to their future success in the job market. whether that is white collar, highly educated profession, or a more skilled technical kind of profession. >> claudia, thank you so much for that insight. >> sure. >>> up next, from the son of a gambling man to one of america's longest serving state governors, governor bob miller's lifestyle reads like the godfather but with a happy ending.
